Considering cosmetic treatments? Here are some things you should know
6th Aug 2019
Cosmetic treatments which can include laser, dermabrasion, dermal fillers or anti-wrinkle treatments are readily available. The beauty of many cosmetic treatments is the fact that they are non-surgical procedures with minimal downtime. However, that’s not to say the process hasn’t started weeks or even months in advance.
“The consultation is critical for the patient to let the practitioner know what their needs and wants are and for the practitioner to assess, educate and guide the patient with what the most appropriate treatment for them is,” notes aesthetic practitioner Dr Stefania Roberts.
According to a recent report into aesthetics, 83% of consumers worldwide are willing to invest in their appearance. (Interestingly, the report also found the most common terms women use to describe beauty were ‘natural’, ‘soft’, ‘smooth’, and ‘healthy’).
However, the popularity of cosmetic treatments doesn’t negate the importance of seeking out an appropriately trained specialist. “The aesthetic non-surgical landscape has expanded rapidly not only with the number of practitioners but also the number of patients presenting to our clinics,” says Dr Roberts. “It is important for all patients considering cosmetic treatments to remember first and foremost that they should seek out a trained practitioner – Plastic Surgeon, Dermatologist, Aesthetic Physician or Cosmetic Practitioner.”
It helps to think of the process a little bit like dating, and that starts with asking the right questions. What training has the doctor had? How long have they been administering cosmetic treatments? Do you feel the doctor understands exactly what you would like to achieve? Do you have all the information about the treatment? Given the potential risk, should I seek a professional opinion for a medical procedure? Dr Roberts recommends a two-fold approach starting with a consultation “to ensure all their questions are answered, information about the treatment given and they leave to think about the treatment before booking.”
A trusted doctor can also help to wade through much of the information (and misinformation) available online. According to the report into aesthetics, 20% of consumers worldwide follow a physician on social media and remarkably, 37% search specific problem areas and treatments online. While having all the information is important, ultimately your chosen practitioner should be able to dispel myth from fact. “The relationship between a patient and their practitioner is based on trust,” says Dr Roberts. “Knowing the practitioner is fully qualified, knows how to deal with complications and has the patients’ best interest at heart.”
